Dave Stone has written a book that is easy to read and addresses the very reason that our country is struggling today: the deterioration of the family. It is a quick read and easy to understand. This book should be a must read for parents and pastors.

I guess I'm reading these out of sequence, but oh well. In this one, I found wonderful stories about loving, FUN families and plenty of direction on how I can have something like that in my home. Our girls at very young right now but we're already starting to build those family tie with faith, love an laughter.

Building Family Ties with Faith, Love, and Laughter is a book focusing on how to connect better with your kids and why we do that. Dave Stone's approach is casual and approachable and I found myself giving a lot of thought so suggestions and solutions that he suggests. I've read some reviews that say He doesn't get to the nitty gritty or that he makes things sound too perfect. I think his approach to this book is less to look at any roots of parental and family issues and more on just how to connect and build bonds with each other. The book lays the foundations on why its good to connect and put the smartphone down and connect face to face. The book then delves into stories and ways to connect, trying to get the reader to think how this can be applied to their lives. Overall a recommended book for ideas to connect as a family. If you're looking for more of a "parenting"/discipline book "Love and Logic" is recommended. Full Disclosure, I received this book from Booksneeze.com for my honest review. All the opinions expressed are my own.

This follow up book to "Raising Your Kids to Love the Lord" is an excellent companion to further ground you in building a healthy family around biblical principles. These books are on the reread shelf because of the principles and concepts within in the book. The best part of this book is the way the author, Dave Stone, doesn't talk down to you or make you feel like you've been doing it wrong all these years, and that he has been doing it right (unlike some other parenting/family books I have read). This book helped me with my family especially during a recent major transition we had to endure with our two small kids. If you are willing to let your collar loose and be a little more uninhibited with your kids, you too can build family ties with faith, love and laughter.

I highly recommend this book to any new husband or new father who is seeking a way to be a better leader for his family. Passivity has taken captive so many men and this book makes a subtle attempt to break those chains of passive bondage.

The book talks about developing a family mission statement and how this will give your family direction, a focus that holds your family together. Secondly, I like how Stone talks about the importance of a family dinner table time. While we do this at home, we are quite lax when the boys want to be excused after eating. Stone through his insightful stories, helped me fast forward in my mind the teen years when our boys might try to get away with this and how that can be risky during those critical years. He gives ideas on how you can establish routines during dinner including developing fun and silly questions ahead of time to create bonds with your family. I'm excited about implementing Stone's Good, Better, Best principle in our family. It's a method in which as a family we discuss what is a Good response to a situation encountered and what would be a better or best response? The author gives the example of being a friend's house for dinner and a good response is, `thank you for dinner, may I be excused?' A better response is, `this dinner was really great! I liked the chicken, May I be excused?' The best response is, `Thank you for dinner. I really liked the chicken. Do you need any help cleaning up?'
This book is jam packed with stories and ideas of how to develop and strengthen your family. I highly recommend this parenting book. It is a quick read and you can determine which methods to implement. As for me, we might be implementing them all.

I enjoyed this book a lot. It gave some practcile tips about how to incorporate daily fun lessons to your kids that they will use into adulthood to become good citizens and trustworthy adults. Although my kids are still a little young to understand how to describe their highs and lows for the day, I am trying to incorporate some of Sloan's tips. It's a great, quick read and best for people with young children.

Building Family Ties with Faith, Love, and Laughter is the second in the Faithful Family series where Dave Stone applies his practical, conversational, and humorous approach to the challenge of building strong spiritual ties to each other as a family. Topics include: Contentment, Security, Loyalty, Gratitude, Spontaneity, Communication, and more.
After reading several positive reviews I was excited to read Building Family Ties with Faith, Love, and Laughter for myself. Dave Stone is a pastor and father who work with the families in his church to build strong relationships- with each other, others around them and with God. I found many helpful, creative ideas to try with my own family to bring us closer together, closer to God and have a little fun along the way. One is, I have already began talking with my children about doing what would be their good, better and best choices in different situations. We also have been talking more during our family dinner each day. I am very happy to add Building Family Ties with Faith, Love, and Laughter to my own personal library and I will be using this book as a reference in the future.
I would certainly recommend Building Family Ties with Faith, Love, and Laughter to anyone wanting to develop strong family bonds. There are many ideas that can be used with children infant through teens.
I received this book from the publisher through the Booksneeze program in exchange for an honest review.
